And now some photos!

My daughter is now a married lady! I haven't worked on any craft projects in a while, but I have participated in a beautiful ceremony and a great party! Here are some pictures from my daughter's wedding last Saturday!

On Friday we helped set up the venue. This is the building where the reception was held.
There was a decorating crew to hang the chandeliers and the strings of lights. That is the maid-of-honor, groom and a bridesmaid in the pic below also helping set up.
My daughter and her now husband made the centerpieces, painted the table numbers and made the limoncello that was the favor. Those flowers are made of a thin balsa wood. She found them on Etsy from Stella Designs Shop
Hubby and I strolled down the lane to the water during one break in set-up and I took some pretty pictures.
There is a nice walkway along the water in this small private community in Rhode Island.
That afternoon we had the rehearsal in the chapel nearby. This is a candid shot that the maid-of-honor took of the happy couple. Katie used the bow bouquet from the shower in her practice walk down the aisle.
On the big day, the bride, bridesmaids and both mothers had hair and make-up done in the bride's hotel room. 
We set up the bridal bear and the bridesmaid's bouquets for a little picture. Yes, those flowers are all made of wood.
Finally, the ladies were on their way to the limo.
The ceremony was wonderful in a little chapel just around the corner from the reception venue (and across the street from the groom's parents' home).
It was a beautiful ceremony.
Here is the whole wedding party after the ceremony outside the chapel.
And here you can see some of the pretty chapel.
The happy couple had their first dance.
Father/daughter dance.
Mother/groom dance.
Cutting the cake.
And some pretty shots of the bride and groom.
Finally, another beautiful shot from the photographer  - Shannon Matos Photography - on the lane leading into the private community.
It was a beautiful day and a wonderful party.

I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching and to share my joy. Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are stitching. I will be getting back to stitching on this four day weekend from school. (We get off for Rosh Hashanah here on Long Island)
